Meet the Mansfield – Kathy Hendricks

Name and work title:

Kathy Hendricks, Head, Library Administrative Services

What do you do in the library?

Provide direct departmental administration for Human Resource and Business Service functions including employee relations; contract administration; recruitment; training and development; planning and budget development; department accounting, cash control, purchasing, travel, and grant administration. This gives me the opportunity to work closely with library faculty and staff as well as campus Human Resource Services, Business Services, Planning and Budget office, and the Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action office.

What are you watching/reading/listening to right now?

I’m currently reading a book by Kevin Canty titled Everything set in Missoula and the surrounding area.  I just finished reading Inside the Other Side by Concetta Bertoldi, an interesting read about life on the other side.

Meet the Mansfield – Shelley Ramberg

29 October 2013 by sarah.weatherby

Name and work title:

Shelley Ramberg, Assistant ILS Administrator (Systems Dept.)

What do you do in the library?

I help maintain our integrated library system, which includes both the online public access catalog and modules for staff work. Though I seldom assist students directly, I do get to work with nearly all our library faculty and staff, and with employees from our affiliate libraries at Montana Tech, Western, Helena College, Salish Kootenai College, and St. Patrick Hospital. It’s an amazing job, and it’s always interesting.

What are you watching/reading/listening to right now?

I do a lot of walking, so I’m a big fan of audiobooks. I’m currently listening to Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker by Kevin Mitnick. And because one book is never enough, I’m also reading R. Crumb’s illustrated Book of Genesis and Mark Z. Danielewski’s wonderfully strange House of Leaves.

Meet the Mansfield – Linder Schlang

23 October 2013 by sarah.weatherby

What is your name and work title?

Linder Schlang, Reference Technician

What do you do in the library?

I work at the Information Center Reference Desk helping students, faculty, staff and community members. I help them learn how to navigate our electronic and print resources so they may effectively do their research.  When not staffing the Reference Desk I work on a variety of projects with librarians focusing on ways to expand public access to library resources, create and assist with exhibits, work on a committee which  organizes continuing education workshops for staff, etc.

What are you watching/reading/listening to right now?

I am currently reading the novel Set This House in Order by Matt Ruff. It’s a fascinating story about a multiple personality and how these internal personalities work together to maintain an orderly existence. It actually makes me think how all people are multiples to a certain extent as we bend and flex to accommodate different situations and people. Thought provoking theme.
